Re­porter gives talk to school pupils

Wishaw Press - - TRANSPORT -

St Ai­dan’s Pri­mary wel­comed a visit from re­porter Ste­fanie Mccourt as part of their Devel­op­ingthe Young­work­force­week.

Ste­fanie – who works at our sis­ter ti­tle, the Hamil­ton Ad­ver­tiser – spoke with pri­mary six and seven pupils about the im­por­tance of lo­cal news­pa­pers, and ex­plained our ed­i­to­rial teams’ typ­i­cal work­ing week.

The young­sters were also in­ter­ested in hear­ing some of the jobs our re­porters cover, and were par­tic­u­larly keen to learn some short­hand!

The visit was just one of a range held at the Colt­ness school through the week, with vol­un­teers hold­ing talks and work­shops on their ca­reers to teach chil­dren about the world of work.
